Who’s ready for TIGERS????

We have many animal friends here besides pandas and (some) cats: koalas (Kevin) grizzly bears (Frank and Mikey), elephants, and even groundhog Punxatawney Phil made an appearance, but once in a while…

There will be TIGERS!

You all remember that story a month or so ago, when the Bronx Zoo reported that several of their tigers tested positive for COVID19, right?

Of course, ZooNooZ got the scoop!

I’ve been waiting for weeks to use this joke…

Panda Commerce Update!

I just posted some new designs over at my Panda Chronicle Shop on Redbubble, and you might want to check them out. Eventually I hope to add these designs to fabric over at another artist “products on demand” site for textiles and linens, but for now, they are available on several products at Redbubble.

BTW, some people asked if I would be making Pinky masks and I probably mumbled something noncommittal, BUT, the folks at Redbubble must have been getting lots of questions about this, because they gave the artists a heads up so we could set up some masks with our designs so when they launch, they’ll all be ready to go!

UPDATE!!! Masks have LAUNCHED! Just head over to my home page at Redbubble, look for the design you like and see if there is a mask available. It didn’t work for every design, but there are masks with all the following designs, as well as some with larger images of Pinky, Bubba, Bee, and Mr. Wu!

Meanwhile, feast your eyes on these…

Beeeeeeeeeeee!

Bubba, two ways! Don’t call mee boo boo!

Nobody expects the panda kindergarten!

Surely you didn’t think I’d forget Pinky, did you?

I included all four of the designs on socks, as well as the soon to be released masks, as well as several other products in their catalog.

You’re welcome!

Panda on!

We are ALL Concerned…

WE knew that the Minch McTurtle led Senate would not vote to remove HWMNBN, even though all the evidence pointed its tiny fingers at him. For me, this unwillingness to look reality squarely in the face and do what needed to be done, verged on cruelty when certain Senators made statements leading one to think that maybe they were on the fence, and could be persuaded to do the right thing.

And now…and now…he is floating the idea that maybe the scientist should look into the idea of using household cleaning disinfectants (“Hey! Everybody has some!”) and strong UV light to “disinfect the body” For the record, this is a bad idea that will kill you, or at the very least make you wish you were dead. And then he gave another press conference to say he was “being sarcastic”.

But at least we got to see Brad Pitt play Dr. Fauci on SNL

And now, without further much ado about the end of civilization (which is not nothing…)

Everyone. Knew.

Washi Tape Has Arrived!

Did I mention Washi Tape has arrived? Check out the Buy Stuff With Pandas page to see how to order it!

Here is a picture of the actual tape!

What Day is it, Anyway

You might think that someone who has worked in her home studio for over 30 years would be able to remember what day it is, but I am having a hard time with that. Yes, I work in my studio every day, but there are regular activities that I engage in, and as most of those aren’t happening, it gets kind of hard to figure out what day it is.

Fortunately, the Whidbey Island Organic Farm School has started up  production, even if their students are not able to be there yet. If you are on Whidbey Island, you’ll know we have a wealth of small organic farms growing wonderful food. Since the farmers markets won’t be opening any time soon, if at all, sales opportunities (i.e. how they actually make enough money to keep going) are extremely limited. If you can, check with your favorite farmer where ever you live, and see if you can get a CSA share. It will keep the farmers working, and you’ll get fresh vegetables that actually taste like something, other than vaguely green.

And now, let’s have some Pandas! One can only eat so much healthy food! Bring on the cuppycakes!

Keeping you safe from evil cuppycakes….

All salute the sacred cuppycake!

What makes a panda run? Cuppycakes, of course!!!!

Legalize cake today! Prevent illicit cuppycake activities.

Can you calibrate the cuppycake?

I have extra frosting!

If I have but one life to live, let me give it for a cuppycake.

Gimmee!

Washi Tape Has Arrived!!!!

I have about 45 more sets of Washi Tape available at $20 for a set of 4 rolls of 4 different designs. If you have a pending felty panda order (Either through Kickstarter or from this website) and would like to add a set, I can add them to your order with no additional shipping costs. See the Buy Stuff with Pandas page for ordering information. If you are trying to figure out what Washi Tape is and what you can do with it, this site is a good place to start!

Here is a picture of the actual tape! Tape is about 1.25″ wide and a roll is 10 meters of tape.

Wands up, everyone! It’s getting pretty scary out there.

Panda On!

The Quarantine (and the fun!!!) Continues!

What did you learn in the quarantine of 2020?

I learned a new thing today! I learned how to print postage labels from my very own home computer! Who knew how easy it is? Okay, everyone but me, but I was dragged kicking and squealing toward computer usage. I used to drive one of my friends who tried to get me to get on the computers nuts with my reticence. I would open a file cabinet drawer and say, “I’m booting up my computer…now I’m opening a file,” as I pulled out a manila file folder and opened it.

Boy, was I funny! Don’t ask me how many computers and digital devices now live in my house. Really…who knows?

People are posting recipes on Twitter, real and ironic. Late night comedy talk show hosts are broadcasting from their living room couch or attic. Authors are holding book launches on Zoom.   The bereaved, denied the opportunity to say goodbye in person are spilling their stunned grief on social media. This is something we’ve not seen, most of us, in our life times.

We find hope even in our despair, we look for joy where we can find it, and so…

I have declared PANDA SATIRE an essential service.
You’re welcome!

Here comes Meihem!

Panda Commerce Alert!

I got an email that RedBubble is having a sale on stickers and socks, among other things! Here’s the link! If you click on the individual designs, it will show you the various things that have that design on them!

Panda on!

So…what was that phone call Mommee Mei got in the last episode?

The Quarantine Chronicles continue…

You may recall, as we ended our last episode, that the phone was ringing after Mommee Mei liberated Bubba and Ping, from their Pinky precipitated imprisonment. Who could it be?
Was it:
The Zoo Director?
The Canadian twins?
Big brother Tai?

No…it was…

Well, bless her heart!

“Things could be better”: Ha ha…Mei has always been the master of understatement!

Panda on!
Wands up!

It’s Sunday! Who’s having a Funday?

Sigh…

Could we have just ONE day without further assaults on democracy, the rule of law, or our sanity? Apparently not. HWMNBN has been inciting right wing groups to protest at state capitols to “liberate” the states from the unfair shutdown. What’s a few less grannies and school kids? If it wasn’t for the fact that, given statistical probability that someone at this event is pre-symptomatic with COVID19 and that multiple people attending will then bring the virus home to their own communities, I’d say let them infect each other. But I’m not that irresponsible.

I’m staying home (mostly) and washing my hands, being careful on those rare occasions I do need to go out, and hope you are too! I need all the readers I can get! BTW, if you’re not reading Heather Cox Richardson’s excellent essays, you really should! She brings a historian’s perspective to our current national crisis, and while she doesn’t pull her punches, she manages to give me hope as well. If you read nothing else (beside my ‘toons, of course) reading these would tell you everything you need to know to exist in today’s world.

So let’s sit back and watch (okay…read) this encore presentation of Kitty Sue and the 3 Pandas! (By popular request!)

This story seems a little, but not entirely, familiar!

Pinky Unleashed!

What with all the pandemic news, did you forget that Pinky was running for PRESYDENT? While the pandas are locked down in the Panda House, they are keeping busy and enjoying hot cocoa with those little marshymallows…well, SOME pandas are…

If Pinky was any more unleashed, we would be in big trouble!

Is FEMA stealing marshymallows too?

Meanwhile, if you missed Sunday’s post and the video link sent by a friend of Panda Satire, check out how this tap dancing group, The Lady Hoofers in Philadelphia is keeping their taps tapping despite the stay at home orders! Pinky makes a surprise appearance at the 1:31 and 1:42 time stamp!

Pinky socks make dancing better!

There Will Be Tigers

Disturbing news…I mean NooZ… came from the Bronx Zoo this week, when it was discovered that at least one of the tigers and several lions had contracted COVID-19, probably from one of the keepers who was asymptomatic. (This is a correction from earlier when I said it was the Woodland Park Zoo with the plague-ridden tigers. I think I confused a news story I read later, because the WPZ was checking their big cats for COVID 19 infections after the Bronx Zoo news.) This has troubling implications, for owners…I mean servants of domestic cats. It is unknown whether it could be passed back and forth from you to your cat, so you might want to wash your hands after playing with Mr. Kitty and refrain from kissing your cat on the lips. I don’t know anyone who might have done this. 🙄

While we wait for the Woodland Park Zoo tiger to have his interview on ZooNooZ, I’ve assembled some of the previous appearances of tigers here at The Panda Chronicles. But first, I wanted to share a video sent to me by a friend of panda satire!

We have had all too much disturbing news, and more comes across our screens every day. All too often I find myself riding the downward spiral into despair that life will ever return to normal. Every trip to Twitter-land reveals heartrending stories of love and loss, but also uplifting stories of hope and kindness. While I will never quit poking at injustice and moronic anti-leadership, I want to make sure what we roll with is not all rant! Pandas are fun and light and love, after all (just ask the Hong Kong pandas! “What do you MEAN have I seen youtube???”)

So, before we enjoy tiger palooza, I share this video sent to me by one of the friends of the panda kindergarten. Make sure you take note of the socks at the 1:31 and 1:42 time stamps!

And now, let’s get up close and personal with tigers!

Much better to take a selfie with pandas!

You know we’re just kidding about this, right?

I really had no idea what she was up to.

I think we need some more encore presentations of Pinky’s last run for the White House, don’t you?

There were no tigers involved in this plan, so it must be okay, right?

Aren’t you already in enough trouble, Pinky?

Pinky enlists her brother's help in her scheme

“Just run along and put these brochures where people will see them!”

You knew Mommee was going to get angry, didn’t you?

And remember, if we stop laughing, the terrorist has won. Stay safe, stay home, wash your hands (with soap and water, don’t just lick them!) and vote in November!

Panda on!
Wands up, everyone!

Mommee Mei has a Good Idea

Seriously, I consider myself extremely fortunate that I’m not trying to do my work AND trying to home school three bickering panda cubbies.What’s a panda to do? My sleeping habits are in tatters, there always seem to be piles of dishes in the sink, and I don’t know if democracy is actually over or if I can ever go back to the grocery store and not feel like everyone has a reverse magnetic force field around them. If I had to listen to Pinky and Bubba fight all day…well…

When will I wake up from this nightmare and discover that President Hilary has made Panda Satire a national treasure?

You can’t get more socially distant than sending everyone to their room!

Wands up, everyone!

It’s Sunday *gulp* Funday!

While the news makes it feel more like Sunday, Bloody Sunday instead of Sunday Funday, here at The Institute for Contemporary Panda Satire, we are dedicated to bringing you fun with pandas!

A quick note: We are ready to start taking orders for more felty pandas! All the information can be found on the Buy Stuff With Pandas page, which you can find right here! You can also order the first group of Panda Chronicle themed Washi tape!

Pinky is a Star (not to mention a icon) and she is ready to be your emotional support panda…well, if you let her be president she will! Wearing her signature tutu and her tiara, Pinky is ready for you to grant her all her wildest dreams. hey! This is Pinky we are talking about. You didn’t think she was here to serve you, did you?

But now, let’s jump into the panda way-back bus and see what encore presentations there are for your Sunday relaxation!

Oh dear….are you going to leave her there?

There must be cake!

Is this any way to treat our Nation’s most adorable icon?

The forces of Meihem are only barely in check.

But at least Pinky didn’t FLUNK CAKE!!!!!

“Oh yeah…dere MIGHT be one or two other pandas in it, but I can’t remember who.”

Never say “no” to Pinky!

And it was ever thus….

Meihem, not Mayhem.

Well, they did hang their coats up.

Introducing Princess Dumpling
